Firefighter and Nurse


14″x11″ Graphite and Watercolor on Bristol

This piece was a commission for a friend from the Fire Department I used to work at.  The concept was simple enough, his helmet and his wife’s nursing hat on a page.  Simplicity in concept gave me a chance to think about how to finally bring a little bit of color into my work and with this piece there were perfect places for it!  Red is a prominent color for both professions and it sparked the idea to introduce it using watercolor over the graphite.

I have to admit I was hesitant to put the brush to the page without having scanned it first…but I’m extremely happy with the results and will be trying to do similar in the future.
